Advancements in additive manufacturing (AM) technology now make it possible to 3D print transparent glass.

Researchers of The Mediated Matter Group at MIT have developed a new AM process with molten glass that presents a potential path toward production of highly complex geometry and custom-designed objects while retaining the optical transparency and chemical stability available of the material.

Their system, called G3DP2, “combines digitally integrated three-zone thermal control system with four-axis motion control system, introducing industrial-scale production capabilities with enhanced production rate and reliability.”
